    and we’re back

    So after three years out in the Westside, i’m back in Cerritos. Moving out to LA was totally worth it, but i realized i have no friends in LA, and it’ll be nice to hang out with all my friends again after being away for so long. When i left all my neighbors just got married, and now that i’m back everyone is on to their second kid. People are already starting to make plans with me, and i haven’t even been back for 24 hours. Sunday i rented a one way trip u-haul, packed up my stuff and hit the road 34 miles south east. The move out of…

    Yearly Earth Day Rant

    Ultimate Environmentalist via twitter: for Earth Day, i declare the new environmental color to be brown, instead of green. Its that time for my yearly Earth Day rant. This year i want to declare that i believe corporation should stop using the term “green” to state their environmentalist style of business. The color they should focus on is brown. Brown is the color of crap, and thats what companies are churning out of their mass production plants. I don’t blame anyone for doing so, everyone is just trying to make a buck, but thats the same thinking that eventually sunk the world economy. Its amazing when everything that we buy…

    jonathan said to smile hard. Now with all the wedding stuff done and over with, and lots of packing and moving to come up i finally decided to cut my shag hair. It didn’t come soon enough with this heat wave that Los Angeles is feeling, even in Santa Monica where it was still 85° at 9pm last night! I love seeing people’s reaction after have long hair for the past 7 months, especially my mom who never likes what my hair looks like. Ok there was one time she liked my hair but i don’t even remember what style that was. So its back to the faux-hawk for the…

    Nuggets two ways

    The McNugget is a combination of chicken that if you knew what it was for real, you wouldn’t probably eat it. Sweetbreads have been described to me by chef’s and books i’ve read as the best chicken nugget you’ll ever eat. Sweet breads are basically something you wouldn’t normally eat, deep fried. Actually, both are pretty similar but at two completely different price points. I actually ate both today, for lunch and dinner. The McNuggets were as they were when i had them 20 years ago as a kid. Round for dark meat, and boot shaped for white meat. The sweetbreads were served at AOC for dinner, and were served…

    Mobsters n’ Molls

    Its been a while since i’ve got out on a Monday night, but when it comes to free drinks and food i’ll make a trek out for the night. I attended my second yelp elite event that took place at Cole’s in downtown LA, that was mobster themed. Joy found a perfect dress amazingly at H&M and i just wore my pin striped suit. We got to snack on a bunch of different (beef, pork, and turkey) french dip sandwiches, some tasty bacon potato salad, and free cosmos for the night. They had a costume contest, a live band playing and there was even a pie eating contest that made…

    Weekend Workout

    Today it hurts to laugh, walk, and sit down. I put my body through some things that it hasn’t done for months. Saturday afternoon after a morning of cleaning i headed down to Manhattan Beach to hang out with Jon and Nel. Nelson works for Cleveland Golf now, so he has a loaner set from work which i wanted to try out, to see if i wanted to try out his 50% discount. We all had some beers then headed to El Segundo golf course and we took some huge swings with Nelson’s huge club. It made the loudest sound i’ve ever heard a club make before, so much it…

    End of the Beginning

    Today marks the one month anniversary of my marriage with Joy and you can say that we celebrated with another party. This time it was for some close friends and family at the Cerritos Library mostly who couldn’t make it out to Hawaii. We were prepping and buying stuff the moment we landed from our honeymoon in Maui to get everything ready for Saturday’s festivities. In the end there were a few minor hiccups, but everything basically went according to plan, and everyone had a great time. I’m so thankful that we have such great friends that helped setup, and breakdown the party. The food from which i was told…
